cQc #324 ~ You're Off the Hook!

Hello! Here we are at another Tuesday and that means a new challenge at ColourQ! We're going green today with Coastal Cabana and Silver added to the mix. When I saw the earrings in the inspiration photo, I saw fish...is it just me?!!?



I did a light color wash on a panel of Tim Holtz water color paper then heat embossed the fish (Stamping Sensations), bubbles (DeNami) and sentiment (DeNami) in liquid platinum. After coloring, die cutting (Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 1) and wrapping the tag with twine I popped in on the polka dot embossed panel with foam tape. I think this one works for a masculine card, what do you think?



I'll be linking this up at House of Cards for their embossing challenge! Thanks so much for popping by today, have a good one ~Lisa

You're going to think I'm nuts but I saw a bucking bull when I looked at the earrings. :D I love your sweet fish though. He's gorgeous embossed in gold and the embossed polka dots echo the bubbles beautifully!
